We were delighted to have been short-listed for three awards on the night; ‘best customer service’, ‘growth’ and ‘best place to work’. Of course, we would have loved to walk away with all three but the ‘best place to work’ was the one we were really after having invested a huge amount in our staff and their working environment.
Right from day one, we have taken employee satisfaction very seriously and as such have implemented some brilliant incentives to keep the team happy, bonded and passionate about their jobs, Leapfrogg and the digital market at large. Not only do we provide the team with financial incentives, they also enjoy free ice-cream and beer days; two “duvet-days” a year, flexi-time; full health care; the opportunity to work from home; company days out; a “Leapfrogg’s got talent” bursary; and legendary Christmas parties!
The team agrees: “Little perks make working here fun and the bigger ones make us all feel excited about the company we are working with and valued. Then, on top of all the perks, we have a great office, a supportive team, respect, responsibility and an ethical outlook. We really are privileged to be working here, no wonder no one wants to leave!”
The result of all of this? A 100% staff retention rate in almost four and a half years since we started Leapfrogg. As we are pretty close to 20 staff now we don’t think that’s too bad! Our view is very much ‘if you look after your staff, the rest will take care of itself’ (well nearly!).
Here are some pictures of the evening…
*shortly after this, much wine was consumed in celebration and there were some very sore heads in the morning!
